Ombre Or Color Lashes: What’s The Difference

It's hard not to notice the trend of ombre and color lash extensions that are going on right now. Whether it's a touch of pastel or bursts of bright hues, it's hard to deny that these colorful lashes make a statement. But before you get all excited to give this look a try to your clients, it's essential to know what you're working with.

There are two main options for colored lashes: ombre lashes and color lashes. While they may seem like similar products, they're very different and will yield different results. We'll talk about what each looks like in this blog and give some examples of each.

Color and ombre lashes are great ways to add fun to your client's everyday look. They allow your client to express themselves with color while still having natural-looking lashes. As a lash artist, you can choose from many different colors and styles, including purple, green, and blue, to add to your client's liking!

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT EACH SERVICE:

The beauty industry has evolved to a point where every client can have the lashes they always dreamed of. They no longer have to rely on mascaras that might be harmful and could cause lash loss. They can have longer, fuller, and natural-looking lashes with eyelash extensions without any risk to their natural lashes (if applied correctly by a lash artist)

With regular black lash extensions, you typically want to come in for fills every 2-3 weeks to maintain the look. With ombre and colored lashes, we recommend coming in every 3-4 weeks for lash fills

Ombre and Color Lashes are different!

An ombre lash is a darker lash on the base of the eyelash extension. It gradually gets lighter as you go to the tip, giving these lashes a gradient color effect—examples:  ombre pink with white base, ombre black with white base, ombre purple with black base, ombre pink with black base, etc.

Color Lash extensions are a solid color throughout the entire lash—examples:  color pink lash extensions, color blue lash extensions, color green lash extensions, etc.

WHAT ARE COLOR LASHES?

Colored lashes are just what they sound like-colored extensions that come in colors such as pink, blue, purple, green, etc. These extensions can be used alone or combined with other colors to create many looks.

Colored lash extensions are not meant to mimic the natural lashes but instead add a pop of color for a dramatic effect or a fun look. You can choose any color, from bold blues and greens to subtle purples and pinks. These are perfect for accenting a fun outfit or matching your client's eye makeup. This lash style is ideal for clients who want to try out something new without boldness.

Color lashes can be mixed to match the unique coloring, so they look perfectly natural on every client.

WHAT ARE OMBRE LASHES?

Ombre lash extensions fade from dark at the roots to lighter at the tips. You can also get natural-looking, feathered ombre lashes that start as a dark color, then go lighter and then dark toward the end of the extension.

The best thing about ombre lashes is that they're flattering; they look great on everyone because they're faded at the ends! If you're looking for an easy way to add some extra pop to your client's eyes without going all-out with colored lashes, ombre lashes are a perfect choice.

It is created to add dimension to the lash line by mixing different colors of lash extensions. The standard colors used are black and brown. For example, an ombre lash set uses black lashes at the base of the lash line that gradually fades into brown lashes at the tips. It creates a beautiful transition from dark to light, which gives the appearance of a more dimensional look.

Like any trend, ombre lashes are becoming increasingly popular. They're a fun way to add color to the lash line for special occasions or everyday glam.

BENEFITS OF HAVING OMBRE LASHES

Ombre lashes offer the same benefits as regular eyelash extensions, including saving time on makeup application, enhancing the eyes, and allowing your client to wake up ready for their day.

As an added benefit, ombre lash extensions allow you to get creative! By blending two colors, you can achieve excellent results that aren't otherwise possible with regular eyelash extensions. You can combine two colors or opt for three shades that blend seamlessly.

WHICH OPTION IS MORE EXPENSIVE?

Color lashes are cheaper than ombre lashes. They are colors that you apply to natural lashes. On the other hand, the ombre combines black and another color to create a beautiful effect on the natural lashes. Ombre is more expensive because it is two colors instead of a single color.

There are multiple options to choose from when picking lash extensions. Deciding on which style is suitable for your client may be difficult. Here are some tips:

Look at the client's eye shape. Are their eyes almond-shaped, round, or hooded? Ombre lashes offer a more natural look. If you want to add a small pop of color, ombre lashes are a perfect choice. These are colored at the tips and appear to be fading into natural lashes.

If you want to make a bolder statement, color lashes are perfect. These are completely covered in color and will add a vibrant look to the eyes. These are great for special occasions or costume parties.

Consider the color of the hair and skin tone. If you have a client with a lighter hair color and skin tone, then brown lash extensions will work great! For those with darker hair, black is usually the preferred choice by most clients. However, if your client has a dark skin tone, then black may not be the best option because it can look harsh against the skin tone. Consider brown/black mixed lash extensions or color lashes in a mix of colors like blue or green!

Think about the overall look you're going for: natural, glamorous, fun? If your client wants an everyday look without being too over the top, ombre lashes are perfect for creating that natural look with just enough volume.

CONCLUSION

If you want even more color, try ombre lash extensions as a lash artist! This service offers several different color options. The best part? You can customize the ombre lash extensions by choosing two or three colors! These lashes are great for any occasion, whether for something as simple errands or as unique as a wedding day.

Both lashes provide the same effect: natural-looking eyes without noticeable makeup or false lashes. They both help the eyes pop, and add depth and dimension to the face by extending them instead of just laying them on top of the real thing.

    Great information. Thank you. What mm is safe for making volume fans with the color lashes? Is it the same as when using regular volume fans that are.07? I usually see the color lashes come in.07 so maybe 6 color lashes per fan? Thank you
